RTown Studio + Showroom opened at the Grapevine Foundry, 701 S Main St., Ste. 102, at the beginning of April. The showroom on the space's first floor will display mixed media artwork for sale from owner and artist Rachel Townsend, as well as new artist exhibitions every month. The space’s second floor contains studio space where Townsend will work and teach classes in.

Townsend said she also plans on having ‘open Saturdays’ where artists can come and bring their own sketchbooks to work and hang out with other creatives.

“I'm trying to make my own safe space for emerging artists, or people who are looking to take their artwork to professional level, as well as just lovers of art to come together,” Townsend said.
